Recently, the legendary professional wrestler Zeb Colter aka Dutch Mantel spoke with the Sportskeeda where he talked about his recent release from WWE. He said;
“Last year I put out a Tweet, that kind of said that I’d heard through Stamford, and I didn’t expect to hear this, that a sale was imminent in the future. Now they led me to believe that it would be in the next six months but it hasn’t been sold yet. But now, and you can’t discount anything you hear about WWE, because this could be fiction, fiction could be truth, you don’t know with Vince McMahon.
“With these recent releases that they have had, it tends to back up that something is up. This Nick Khan guy, he’s getting more power and he got rid of some people this week, usually it’s right after WrestleMania but this is like six weeks after WrestleMania.”
